Louisville woman aims to light up entire city for the holidays

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- One woman is making it her mission to light up all of Louisville this Christmas.

Victoria Coakley wants West Louisville to be just as bright and festive as the downtown area. 

"There's not a lot of Christmas lights in the West End. There's a lot of ambulance and police lights," Coakley said.

She asked the Mayor and Metro Council members to help make that possible, but didn't have much luck.

That's when she decided to take it upon herself to light up homes along Broadway.

"It like changes the atmosphere of everything. There's not really a lot of activity or positive things going on that you can visually see. So the lights are something that you can see," Coakley said.

With help from the community, she received enough donations to decorate about 100 homes.

She plans to light up the West End again next year.
